|Caitlyn "Rogue" Walker didn't feel comfortable in the high society life her parents led so she moved to Somerset, Kentucky to teach at a local school. Her last name caused her major trouble but she didn't run from it. Now four years later, she has lost her teaching job but remains in Kentucky as a bar owner. Her physical innocence remains but her mental innocence has fled. She now goes by "Rogue" and revels in the atmosphere of a rowdy bar. Zeke is the town sheriff and he and Rogue have been skirting around each other for years. Zeke feels his sexual tastes are too aggressive for young and innocent Rogue. It will take the danger that the Freedom League brings to the area and to Rogue for Zeke and Rogue to get together.
I believe this is the best Nauti book yet. Well developed yet flawed characters mixed with fast-paced and action-packed suspense drives this story from the very beginning and doesn't let up until the very last page. There were many of the characters from previous Nauti books as well as some new ones that added to the suspense. Zeke's teenage son plays a small part in this book but already shows promise of becoming a lady's man and an honorable gentleman. I was spellbound by the sexual tension between Rogue and Zeke while at the same time laughing out loud at their dialogue. Rogue is the woman we all admire. She's sexy, smart, and sasssy. Zeke is the perfect tortured hero with his angst over past mistakes and a future he is afraid to embrace. Their sex scenes were wild and thrilling with an underscore of the emotions they were both battling. Nauti Deceptions was a fantastic addition to the Nauti series. The very end left me with the hope that a new Nauti generation will soon make their way into the pages of a book.
